E-bike Tours of St. Petersburg

Would you like to see sights of St. Petersburg in truly unique way?  We have just the ticket. Rob’s Radical Rides builds electric chopper bikes that make a stylish statement.  The silent smooth ride is certain to put a grin on your face and yeah, style is included.

We specialize in exclusive tours of St. Petersburg’s downtown area on our outrageously fun custom bikes.  We’ll checkout the fantastic waterfront park system along Tampa Bay, the new Dali and other museums, and give you the inside track to the restaurants, clubs, and bars.

There is no other set of electric bikes in the world like ours because they are all custom built by Rob.  Each bike in our distinctive fleet has unique handling characteristics and edgy curb appeal.  Every rider gets to pick out a one-of-a-kind custom built e-chopper for the tour.  The 20 mph breeze will keep you cool even in the heat of summer and you can choose to pedal as much as you like or at not all.  Our fun and informative tour is designed for riders of all abilities, and the e-choppers are all tuned to perfection to give you the ultimate urban electric bike experience.

Each tour begins with a safety orientation and brief test drive.  We’ll cover hand signals, rules of the road, safe operating practices, and much more. After the orientation, you’ll explore downtown St. Petersburg using its impressive bicycle friendly infrastructure.  One unique aspect to the tour is that we have a two guides (one in the front leading the way and a tail-gunner keeping us safe).   Since the use of headsets is illegal while riding a bike, we will stop along the route to discuss the points of interest and answer any questions.  Please see below for various tour options.

Cancellation due to Rain
